Overview of an Anguilla Limited Liability Company (LLC)

An Anguillan Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a hybrid entity that combines elements of a partnership and corporate structure; it provides limited liability to its owners, allowing an individual to run their business without risking personal assets. 

Anguilla passed the Limited Liability Company Act (LLC Act) in 2000, offering many of the traditional features based on the Wyoming LLC ordinance, but with a more modern and progressive outlook that was designed to suit international investors. Some of its features include a provision that allows the term of an LLC to be perpetual or can have an unlimited life. 

An Anguilla LLC provides excellent asset protection and privacy regulations that ensure client confidentiality and security. An LLC protects personal assets the same way a corporation protects shareholder assets. If the LLC goes into default, its members cannot be sued for personal liability. Owners or members receive a share of the profits in proportion to their contribution, similar to that of a partnership.

Anguilla is a true tax-free zone, with taxes only being levied against members in their country of residence. The jurisdiction has an English Common Law system with governmental regulations that greatly assist in creating a prosperous offshore financial environment. An Anguilla based LLC has no financial reporting requirements, offers nominees services, only needs one member for incorporation and can be formed within a single business day all of which makes Anguilla an attractive jurisdiction to form an offshore company.
